You must go to a full service Registry of Motor Vehicles branch, such as Southbridge or Springfield. You do not need an appointment and you cannot schedule an appointment. You must go at least two hours before the branch closes. Otherwise, you may be turned away, due to a lack of time to get in to take the test. You must have a Learner’s Permit Application, which is available on the RMV’s website or at the RMV branch, a certified copy of your birth certificate (one with a raised seal) or a passport and your social security card/number.

The cost of a learner’s permit test is $30.00. You must pass an eye exam, so if you need glasses/contact lenses, don’t forget them! You will also have your photograph taken once you have passed the permit exam.
